Find a roommate you like and all is well. Find one you don’t, and life becomes very difficult. One of the biggest problems people have is cleaning. If you can match this item, life with a roommate will be far more pleasant. Ask some of the following questions to determine if you are both on the same level when it comes to cleaning your apartment:

  • How often do you think an apartment should be dusted?
  • How often do you thing an apartment should be vacuumed?
  • How many times a week would you like the bathroom cleaned?
  • What type of food storage habits do you have? Do you cook, clean up and refrigerate leftovers immediately or whenever you get around to it?
  • Do dirty dishes in the sink bother you?
  • How often do you like to do laundry?
  • What things do you have trouble tolerating in terms of cleaning?
  • Does it bother you if clothes are left out in a common area? What about other things?
  • Do you think recycling is important?
  • Do you like to share cleaning tasks or prefer to have things split up?
  • On a scale from one to ten, how important is having a clean apartment to you?
